Hip-Hop producer Malik Abdul Rahmaan is an infinite source of music history spanning generations and cultures. It makes sense for the burgeoning musicologist who feels just at home in his Brooklyn residence or his home-away-from-home Tokyo. Malik is big in Japan where his beloved soulful beats keep him never lacking for production work. Everyone wants some of the Malik-style including Wu-Tang Clan's Ghostface Killah. His 2014 album 36 Seasons featured no less than three tracks with production by Malik. In addition to helming the sound for others, Malik is an artist in his own right; look out for his forthcoming project under his own name featuring field sounds. Can't wait!
